Last night The Frontier Group descended on the Western Australian component of the Australian Web Awards for a night of fun, drinks and a chance to recognise the outstanding work that the WA Web Industry produces every year. The quality of work seen was fantastic and we’re looking forward to the national awards at Web Directions later this month.
The Frontier Group managed to take home the Innovation award for the GOT APP website. GOT APP is a mobile application for finding the best venue for your night out or weekend, it shows you nearby bars and helps you find out when each bar is going to get busy.
30under30 is an Anthill initiative that was launched in early 2008 to encourage and promote entrepreneurship among young Australians. Each year, Anthill invites readers to nominate young Australian entrepreneurs deserving of recognition for their outstanding entrepreneurial endeavours.
Formerly Port 80 Inc, the Australian Web Industry Association represents businesses, individuals and students involved in the web industry and aims to:
Further the advancement of the web industry within Australia;
Educate the general public about the role of professionals in the web industry;
Foster greater ties with like-minded organisations.
As Managing Director of The Frontier Group, I have nominated to be on the committee in one of the upcoming vacant positions.
As a reasonable size business in the industry it would be good to have a voice within the association and help craft the future of the web industry Australia wide. Paid AWIA members can vote at the AGM (as well as submit a proxy vote).
